Face contouring services are procedures that alter your facial appearance by changing its shape or structure. While you might be familiar with facelift surgeries that serve this purpose, there are also several face contouring treatments that don’t involve surgery, its risks, or any scarring.
When you visit Comprehensive Dermatology for a treatment consultation, the team helps you review your treatment options and choose procedures that align with your goals. They might recommend getting more than one treatment to create your ideal result. At the time of your initial visit, the team tells you how to prepare for the services in your care plan.
Comprehensive Dermatology offers several evidence-based treatment options to adjust your facial shape and contours. While these treatments aren’t as complex or drastic as surgery, they offer natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Depending on your goals, the team might recommend:
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that a dermatologist meticulously injects beneath your skin. They simulate the appearance of natural fat and tissue under your skin and can plump up areas that lack volume, such as your lips or cheeks. Certain fillers also work for jaw contouring to minimize features like jowls or contour irregularities.
Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that minimizes dynamic lines. These are the wrinkles that appear because of your facial movements, such as forehead and frown lines. Botox works by inhibiting the nerve signals that tell these muscles to move.
The non-surgical face contouring treatments you can get at Comprehensive Dermatology won’t give you permanent results, but they do offer long-term improvements. Botox injections for wrinkles tend to last for 3-4 months at a time, which can vary based on your skin type, age, and other factors.
Fillers are a little different and vary in the duration of their results. Some fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a hydrating natural gel that dissolves after six months to a year. Other fillers last longer because they stimulate collagen production. The collagen growth outlasts the fillers themselves in these cases.
